Keyboard quit responding

Question

Why can't I type into website boxes anymore? I can do it on this backup machine but not on my main one. I could before, but it suddenly quit working. Can't even type into some AOL dialogue boxes anymore. Do you have any idea why this has happened and a solution?

Thanks for your question If you have a lot of devices installed on your computer it could be that your CPU is overheating Because of the effort made having to handle all the devices that you have on your computer (especially if you have it working as the server for another computer using your network card) Sometimes it locks up to cool down a little bit Check the fan and make sure it is working properly

Check that the keyboard is properly installed or if the pins are not damaged Something you could try is a different keyboard for a few days, if this works then replace the keyboard The keyboard cable could also be damaged Good luck
